The same old story, you go to bed
crazy thoughts spinning in your head
laying there waiting hoping you’re falling
listening to your other half flat out snoring😼
when it’s late and dark outside
your mind goes into overdrive
tossing turning back and forth
mind ablaze with stupid thoughts
The night drags on it seems forever 🙀
In daylight things seem so much better
It doesn’t make sense but, would appear
worries in daytime disappear?
In the day I can sleep like a baby 👶
But come nightfall.. it never fails to amaze me
There’s no way I’ll go off tonight
The demons are waiting and ready to fight
They’re waiting for you to stop you sleeping
To keep you awake for no other reason
can’t they clear off and leave well alone?
and not make this a sleepless zone?
Maybe I’ll change and become nocturnal?
get rid of my eye bags and black circles
only trouble is what can you do all night?
just another dilemma to add to my plight!
